  • More than just research, today we are going to focus on how to develop Information Literacy and the process of finding information.
  • More than just research, today we are going to focus on how to develop Information Literacy and the process of finding information.
  • Catalog: From the Catalog Tab, Search for Books by Author, Subject, Title, Keywords. Use the Power tab to do a boolean search Websites: From the Catalog Tab click on “Webpath Express” on the left menu. Search as you would in any search engine,Results = more focused (free from sites that pay to be at the top)
  • Catalog: From the Catalog Tab, Search for Books by Author, Subject, Title, Keywords. Use the Power tab to do a boolean search Websites: From the Catalog Tab click on “Webpath Express” on the left menu. Search as you would in any search engine,Results = more focused (free from sites that pay to be at the top)
  • Database: What is a database? (remember scholarly sources)Ebsco video and boolean search video Practice search in
  • What you can find on my blog: Go over main menus and page links.
  • Finding MLA information
  • Credibility:  The author and her/his credentials are clearly stated and are valid.  A claim in expertise should not be accepted with validation of degrees or a position that would require/provide such expertise. •Accuracy:  Can the information be verified through other sources?  Is the information supported with either research that is thoroughly explained or reference to credible sources.  Does the information seem to contradict logic and what I already know to be true?  •Reliability: Does the source seem to favor one particular point of view or a bias?  Does this affect the accuracy of the piece?  Can I trust the source is giving me the whole picture and if not, is there anything useful in the piece to my research topic? •Relevance:  Does the source directly support my hypothesis and/or answer my question?   If not, though it may be related and interesting, it might not be a source that you could use to complete the assignment. •Date/Currency:   Is it stated when the information was created and revised?   Is currency important in relation to my subject matter?   •Sources behind the text:  Did the author of the source (if a secondary source) use reliable, credible, scholarly sources?  •Scope:  Does this source provide in-depth and well-researched information about my topic or superficial, opinion-based coverage?   In other words, does it give scholarly or popular treatment to the subject?
  • What's an Academic Source?An academic source is an resource that has been evaluated by experts in the field for its accuracy (this is called "peer reviewed"). a study, where the writer proposes a research question, sets up a survey or questionnaire or some other form of measure, conducts the study and reports on the results. Written for researchers / students Clearly and accurately lists/sites references How do I find an Academic Source?Databases or print journals. DDo an advanced search and select either "peer reviewed" or "scholarly article." Source: http://seniorenglishresearchproject.blogspot.com/
